Double-click? Oh how conventional of you, darling!

...er in the manual, number 3 has the title "indicators/horn/headlamp flash" and num,ber 4 has the title "lights/dip"....

On a more related note, doesn't Windows explorer work in exactly the same way - Click to select, pause, click to enter edit/rename mode.... and hasn't it worked like that since Windows 2000....?

Re: Not News

Devon has never EVER been known as "Devonshire" (except by the ignorant). It isn't a shire nor was it ever.

Your analogy of Shropshire and Yorksire is laughable (and puts you firmly in the aforementioned exception).

I don't mind foreigner making the mistake, but for someone claiming to have "grown up there" to get it so wrong just beggars belief.

um, unless my memory is shot (which, given the amount of a certain green substance I may or may not have consumed at university, is a distince possibility) I thought that Skynet was the computer system not the satelite system....

Also, on another note, is it really a great plan to be sending up a multi-million pound satelite on the Ariane 5 rocket.... didn't it blow up (or was that the Ariane 4...? damn my memory)

ah well,
